I dont have anything to add to your question...
I would be curious as to additional info on Vera Dixon however. I am just starting out on doing research and within my Grandfathers family tree is a brother Albert Dixon that married a Vera Dixon and lived in Moose Jaw.
Albert Dixon was KIA June 13 1943 when his plane was shot down. They had two children that (from what I had heard) lived briefly with Albert's parents and then went back to live with Vera and I lose track of her and the kids from there.
I was just wondering if the Abe Dixon you mention may be Albert Dixon of my family tree.
